Apple released its iOS 7 last year, whose huge change brings total polarization of evaluation. However, it has leaded the design of “flattering” trend. Not long ago, updated was released to fix some bugs. According to the previous experiences, the update after iOS 7.1 won’t have too big changes. Thus, more and more iFans are looking forward to iOS 8.
As the nearing of Apple WWDC，there has run out of more and more rumors about iOS 8. It is very likely that iOS 8 will be released on June, and come into market on Sept. along with iPhone 6. Let’s lay out what has been rumored about iOS in the rest article.
New Health Application - Healthbook
At present, 9 to 5 Mac revealed a lot of iOS screenshot which is most likely iOS 8 beta. The most obvious change from the screenshot is the new application called “Healthbook” which is able to achieve various sport supervising functions. Screenshots also tell us Healthbook is designed to supervise users’ amount of exercise, heart rate, hydration level, blood pressure even glycemic index. Obviously, it is more powerful than other similar application. M7 Sport coprocessor, which is packed in iPhone 5s, is able to achieve ordinary supervising function, but not to supervise heart rate, blood pressure and glycemic index.
Apple Map App is Enhanced
In addition, interesting contents nearing to bus/train station or airport will also be added. And interface experience is to be improved as well.
Open Public Use of Siri Interface
Siri, as one of the apps that Apple gives great expectation, is not so satisfactory to public. Thus, in order to change this situation, Apple might open the Siri interface to public in iOS 8, aiming to be compatible with more third party apps as well as achieve more application forms. Plus, there is rumor said that Siri would be likely to be capable with context awareness. For example, when you are running, it will initiate the sport supervising function automatically, then, it is a real “Smart Setting”.
iTunes Radio Becomes an Independent Application
It is likely that iTunes Radio will become an independent application in iOS 8, and it will also support more countries and regions.
Text Editor and Preview Application
Though there is no big change on iOS 8 interface, many new applications will be added into it. Except for Healthbook, operation tips and new text editor applications will also be built in.
